Good Morning from the Federation!
I will start by saying 'thank you' to all the travelers who were patient with us as we hosted the ceremonies a few days ago. The borders are open once again.
Over in our captiol city, we have begun preparations to swear in our new leader. Zacia Milikova will take the proverbial throne with majority support from both the populace and the Kremlin. Josef Reznov, the current leader, made the decision yesterday. "In the spirit of diversity, we have decided to end the string of male leaders that have been at the front of our nation for decades. As we embrace a new species and a new style of thinking, it would only make sense to instill a leader who will continue to follow the new path." -(Taken from an earlier speech). We will work on updating our factbooks and seeing to our international relations.
Military officials in the Kremlin have also put the Armed Forces on standby as they discuss the possibility of another conflict in the near future.
That is all the news we have at this time. This is RSNN signing off.
Congratulations reds, although i do wonder what you equ's refer to as "possible another conflict" i mean, outside of spreading your peasant collectives around the world i can also see a potential another war with us, so tell me now red worm, wanna fight? - Leader of Spanelsko (as insane as per usual)
On unrelated note, i bought recently warband (mount and blade) and found out by accident that cavalry is insanely over powered.
I can fight with my force of about 100 men armies of up to 400 alone and with about 10% losses wipe out the enemies.
Even funnier was when yesterday after we as Vaegirs attacked the Khanate we had a battle of 360 Vaegs (120 mine rest was our faction leader) against nearly 760 Khanates.
The result? about 40-50 dead and wounded on our side, enemies? Eradicated. We captured 3 of their lords and even their Khan XD
We've been seeing an increase in drug trafficking from some cartels. The Kremlin is divided between increasing security on the border* or simply invading the offending country** that houses the cartels.
* I'm not going to build a wall like Trump. Our border is just too big.
** I don't know who I'm going to use, but it's going to be one of the game generated nations. Like Blackacre, Maxtopia, ECT.
Ah..... Warband. That was a fun game. I was glad to work under King Ragnar of the Nords. Before I left Warband to go to the new Bannerlord, the only time I captured all of Calradia. That and he gave me way more fiefs. I didn't ask for any, but ended up with nearly all of Swadia under my rule.
